Bihar 2012 – Join Us On Our Next Trip

Our next trip to Bodhgaya, Bihar, India is scheduled for 10 – 25 February 2012. Bodhgaya is where Buddha achieved enlightenment. Volunteers can choose to come for the whole trip or parts of the trip, depending on your availability. Our President, Tarik Kadri, will be going and leading the group of volunteers again this year. As a guide, he knows how to get around India, where to stay, and where to eat. Tarik will also assist with obtaining your India visa and booking your flights.

Our primary purpose of our field work is to purchase items from the local village and deliver them to the orphanages. There are opportunities to conduct research/write field blogs, teach the children languages or activities or sports, and take photos and videos of the children for Paper Kite.

Why volunteer in India with Paper Kite?

  • Our focus is on improving the lives of those most at risk in one of the poorest regions on earth.
  • We are a 100% volunteer run charity.
  • All the volunteers travelling to Bihar pay for their travel and living expenses. We ask volunteers to look for sponsorship and do personal fundraisers to off-set the cost to India. This ensures that all donated money to Paper Kite goes to the children.
  • Be apart of and see how Paper Kite implements our four programs. Volunteer directly with the children.
  • Gain international volunteer experience without paying a service charge. You only pay for your travel and expenses.
  • Go with Paper Kite’s President, an experienced India traveller who will assist and support you before and during the trip.

•Flight from Vancouver & Toronto (Return): $1100
•India Visa: $80
•Local Travel: $100 – $200
